This is a great value helmet. I'm an entry-level rider, and need basic protection that's easy on the pocketbook. My Father, a 30 year rider, was equally impressed with this helmet's combination of features, quality, and affordable price. It's comfortable and well vented.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR CORRECT AFX HELMET SIZE.
MEASURE YOUR HEAD. Determine the circumference of the widest part of your head by using a flexible tape measure. Generally, the widest part of a person's head is the area 2.5 cm (1") above the eyes and ears. However, we suggest measuring at a few points both above and below that line to determine the greatest measurement before referring to our size tables. We also suggest testing the fit of a helmet one size smaller and one size larger then what the chart recommends. No helmet can provide protection if it's too uncomfortable to wear. If you would like further detailed instructions on how to determine your correct size please look at our AFX Helmet Fitting Guide.

Bought this for my wife-- her choice, fits well, she enjoys it and feels protected
Watch the video on this one: Overall, a very good quality helmet, but a couple of shortcomings: First, the shield does not fit tight against the gasket, so rain will get in...Also, with the shield UP, a LOT of whistling windnoise above 45 mph. I wanted a high-viz, and the yellow/green is great! Overall quality and finish of this value-priced helmet is impressive. It is NOT $400 or $500, it is under $100, you can't beat that for this product.
With the exception of tucking/strpping them into your shoes. the pants keep you dry. Unfortunately the water tends to run down the pants (gravity) into your shoes.
One reviewer said buy it a little big. Never truer words spoken. You won't be disappointed.
Ordered a little bigger as suggested here. Fits perfect.
Decided to go with this helmet because of the great price and sharp look. I am definitely satisfied; size is true to the chart, great quality, totally comfortable, comes with a nice helmet sleeve, and definitely looks sharp. Only problem I had was when I was trying to put a new shield in, I snapped the spring to hold it in so I had to buy another part but other than that, no issues.
I purchased the AFX-90 a while back in pearl white. For starters, this thing looks great. I dont look like a bobblehead with it on. It runs true to size and is incredibly comfortable for its price range. The only downside is that at speeds of 50+ mph, you get some slight whistling through the vents and the spaces between the visor and helmet. However, for a sub $100 helmet, this does the job and does it well. I have a larger head than most (7 3/8 hat size), and the medium fits my head perfectly. If youre looking for a no frills helmet that gets the job done without emptying your wallet, the AFX-90 will do that and then some.
This helmet is of good quality, looks great and it is a great affordable price. I bought this for my grandson just recently for his birthday. He has two of these helmets now. He uses one for his dirt bike which he has owned for two years now and the other one, I bought him this for his street bike. The dirt bike helmet has stood up to the test and has proven to be a great helmet for the price. This helmet also comes in so many colors which makes it easy to match your vehicle/bike and that is a A+ in my book. I would highly recommend this helmet.
Fits well , very comfortable, and good quality.
I used my helmet today and it was a great fit, I felt comfortable and safe. I also looked dam good if I must say so myself:)
The helmets were the best buy. We use the helmets in power boat racing and they give us safety, comfort and visibility needed. The venting keeps the shield clean. Will recommend to other if asked.
My first two helmets were a different brand and I wasn't impressed by the value for the money. But the second one lasted five years and Motorcycle Safety Foundation recommends replacing your helmet every 3-5 years. My new helmet is less than half the price of the other brand, appears to be higher quality, fits well, but seems a little noisier than the other brand. I've had my helmet for a month, worn it over 1500 miles, and am delighted so far.
Although this helmet is priced cheap, it does not look or feel that way. Very high quality and comfortable.
Great Price Helmet fits a little tight but wearable.
I was very impressed with this helmet. The size was perfect and the delivery was prompt.
Nice helmet. Good looking and a good value for the buck. Bought it for my daughter who rides with me from time to time.
I purchased two of these for my fiance and myself in high visibility yellow. I went two sizes above the suggestion for me and one for her. They fit well and have exceptional quality. I feel like I got more than my money's worth from AFX. Thanks Jafrum for great product's and service.
Very impressed, for the price cant beat it!
There is no such thing as an entry level helmet. Your head doesn't get more resilient to asphalt the longer you've been riding, so your needs, as far as protection is concerned, don't change. Bonking your head is bonking your head. I prefer instead to classify helmets relative to the helmet, not the rider. The AFX FX-90 is a very basic value priced helmet. While it shouldn't be classified as entry level, its price does make it a good choice for a rider who is unsure if they are going to like motorcycling, and doesn't want to spend a whole bunch of money to find out.
This helmet is DOT and ECE approved and features a relatively light weight poly alloy shell that contributes to the FX-90's three and a quarter pound weight. It is available in sizes extra small thru two X but the fitment chart is a little off on the site so here goes. First of all, this FX-90 has a very round head form. If you have a real long oval head shape like I do, this probably isn't going to the best lid for you. Next, they run small. Not snug so much as really small. I have a twenty three and a half inch head which puts me in a medium as per the size chart. This is an XL and it's still a little snug on my forehead. Remember, though, I have a long oval head shape. Regardless, I would go no less than one size larger than the fitment chart recommends for your head measurement.
The features on the FX-90 are about what you would expect. Everything works, there are just some helmets that work better. The ventilation is ample. The vents are direct port, so there is no channeling in the EPS, but the vents are numerous, so the helmet stays pretty cool. Where the helmet shows its price is the shield. The optics are decent, but the gasket leaks and the side plates are pretty tough to work with. It's important to remember, though, to compare apples to apples. Compared to other helmets in this price range, the FX-90 is right on par with most of the competition, and a good value over all.
